Avoiding Facebook’s Toxic Suggestions

I feel the need to check Facebook periodically because of some pages that I help maintain and some family and friends who I want to check up on. Because FB is addictive, I usually end up mindlessly scrolling for a minute or two.

But that mindless scrolling usually stops after I see a couple of posts labeled “Suggested for you” with click-bait memes linking to pages that glorify conspiracy theorists or promote toxic anti-woke right wing pages. Instead of taking the bait (and it’s sometimes very hard not to), I close out Facebook for the rest of the day and edge closer to the day I won’t open it up again
